All I can say is that God knows what He is doing. I was getting really down and depressed after not getting hired in the district that I did my student teaching in. Everyone thought for sure I would be hired. Unfortunately I wasn't "connected" to the right people and did not get hired. But now I know that was not God's plan for me. I applied to other districts and received a call last week from a principal in a different county (the county where my husband works- he has been driving for 2 hours one way for a year). The interview lasted over an hour and at the end she asked me if I would accept the job. The greatest advice I can give is to have faith and don't give up. Good luck to all of you!
